Mike Brown, Lakers Agree To Deal: Los Angeles Hires New Coach

ike Brown and the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a four-year deal worth $18.25 million, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.
Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday night that the Lakers had made an offer to the former Cleveland Cavaliers coach.
Lakers executive vice president Jim Buss was said to have been impressed with Brown's defensive style.
Broussard tweeted that Lakers star Kobe Bryant is"on board" with the hiring and has "great respect for him."
Brown was named Coach of the Year after the 2008-2009 season. He went 211-117 as the Cavs head coach and was the fourth youngest coach in NBA history to win 60 games.
The Lakers are expected to make the announcement later this afternoon.



  1. dont like brown, bad coach

  2. I've seen people say they like Brown. A lot, but me, I'm indifferent.

  3. i need to start following this stuff more. havent watched anything in a few months

  4. Mike Brown was such a scrub. Dude was merely a figurehead. Course maybe it's because Bron is uncoachable. Maybe he'll do well in LA, but once Kobe retires, that team is done and he'll be fired after his first 35 win season.

  5. Hahaha. He's gonna make millions to stand on the side and watch.
